Interpretations Vol. 8 is here! This year brings you the charming 8th collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki. This collection includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

In 2021 we continued to work together virtually. We found this to be a great opportunity to show you a bit of our home countries. We did the photoshoots separately in our respective major cities: Helsinki and Buenos Aires. Joji’s pictures are taken by Claudia Salazar, Veera’s by Jonna Jolkin.

There are so many small acts of kindness that can bring us comfort and care. Maybe it’s a call from a dear friend, a warm hug, a conversation, or a relaxing walk. Often I feel like the yarn I’m holding is a long-awaited hug from a friend, especially when the yarn happens to relate to a place or a person. Compassion speaks volumes in the quietest way, letting someone know you are there for them, no questions asked.

The Owl Cowl is a sweet little cowl with bobbles. It makes an easy and delightful knitting project, perfect for even the most precious stash findings.
